Shopify reverts to profitability due to reduced costs and investments in artificial intelligence (AI).
Shopify (NYSE: SHOP) achieved a profitable third quarter by exercising rigorous cost management and implementing artificial intelligence across its product offerings to attract a larger merchant base. This success propelled its U.S. shares up by 10% before the market opened.
In the third quarter, Shopify reported total revenue of $1.7 billion, surpassing analysts’ expectations of $1.67 billion, according to LSEG data. To maintain a competitive edge in the e-commerce market, Shopify has introduced new tools and services while significantly improving product delivery times.
